Often the post rock associated with something dysicho the minimal to the point of indignation, the notes with a dropper and repetition as fundamental principle. It is now (and) a Greek band impressive, offering a different perspective of this kind, which is anyway so general as the label indicates.

Yes, Gravitysays_i slowly develop their themes with outbreaks, sporadic and function rather transitory. The orchestrations are not suffocated beneath many layers of sound. But, on the other hand, the melodies are dominant. Their songs are accessible and less familiar ear.. The compositions of the albums have something epic and sacred at the same time, but certainly will not wonder where the rock came from. The best simulation that I can pay personally, is that of [ Crippled Black Phoenix ] of Greece, since I like to approach music in a very similar way.

The two key ingredients at the outset give identity to their sound which is extremely choral. But this is a great word, and returning to Gravitysays_i to mention the atmosphere they create and which seem to excel, whether dark noisy soundscapes, melodic or acoustic guitar bridges and painted buttons adjacent to progressive rock.

The short duration of the album, but mostly dense and beautiful formations make the hearing pleasure. At the end of the year when we count the beans on who impressed us drive more this year from across the spectrum and from whatever origin of music, Gravitysays_i have already earned a nomination, and even more you are likely to list this one. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It’s hard not to stare in open-mouthed amazement at the sheer brilliance of Gravitysays_i’s superbly executed, intensely creative and nearly flawless sophomore album, The Figures Of Enormous Grey And The Patterns Of Fraud. They bring together experimental, dark, atmospheric elements along with Greek and Eastern traditional music and examine social values, institutions and morality as an extension of individual, as well as collective, conscience with an emotional clarity and narrative acuity that makes it an undeniable triumph. And the same goes for the [ The Roughest Sea ].

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.


New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
